Treeless + Flowers

Howdy, a quick update.  Here is the front now after the trees are gone.  I wanted to take the pics when the front was less cluttered but the contractors haven't come this week so there ya go, I took pics anyway this morning before I left for work. 





















I got these flowers when I stopped at the dollar store yesterday.  6 plants, 6 bucks!  They'll be planted where the trees used to be.  Mini red roses and Campanula (Bellflower, Blue Bells).  Hope they survive without too much sun.


































Have a lovely Friday and thanks for visiting!

Always good to have some colorful flowers. Will be cheerful to see them. Hope they're thriving.

Annie, you are lucky to find live plants at your dollar store! That's one of the perks of living in CA. =)

Where you been Toots? My blog is NOT updating when my blog list updates! House looks great! And your dollar tree has live plants? Not mine.
In answer to your question about the plants outside my kitchen window..they are silk trees. I love them though. I put them there for Xmas. and should be taking them down soon. I bought them in a cute shop downtown, and love them. They remind me of your pines you had in your header pics. The sort of wonky pines.
And yes, growing up in the 70's was fun. But I was not a wild child. No drugs...I was a good girl!!
